Rescue Beauty Lounge Je t'aime! Je t'aime! collection swatches and review

Bonjour à tous!
Today is the unveiling to the Rescue Beauty Lounge Spring collection Je t'aime! Je t'aime!, celebrating the many faces of Paris. 

I first came to Paris in 1999 as a 29 year old. I was in awe of this city of lights. Shadows of lovers crossed the bridges above the Seine, cooing whispers to each other while embracing tenderly. The city’s residents seemed to be surrounded by a soft, amber light. It took me back in time, to that period of dreamy make-believe that is Paris—the magical city.

The Je t'aime! Je t'aime! collection consists of 6 polishes. Unveiling is a little bit different this time around since 2 colors are still in the making so here are the first 4 :

*edit* check out swatches of the entire collection after the jump!

Bonne Journée is a bright blue based pink shimmer with a smooth, brushstrokes-free finish. I used 3 nice and easy coats for macro purposes but it looked sufficiently opaque with 2. 
Have a good day is how we should all take leave of anyone—this is a happy rose pink with blue undertones and a hint of copper. The shimmery satin finish will put a smile on your face and spread happiness because it works with all sorts of skin colors. This formula just glides on. Pink has never been this good.

Ah, Oui is a beautiful periwinkle jelly, so soft and delicate. Formula was a little thin so I used 3 coats plus topcoat.

“Ah, yes?!” Just keep saying this if you don’t understand a thing anyone is saying—I’ve fooled so many peeps saying this while exhaling, “Pfttt!” This color epitomizes Parisian chic. It’s not blue, not purple, not gray; just picture a perfect, cloudless Parisian powdery periwinkle sky. This polish is a glasslike periwinkle cream-jelly (I’ve only a few to go to complete my rainbow of crème jellies), transparent in one coat with an exceptionally smooth application; you can even add another coat on the tips of your nails for an easy gradient effect.

Pardonne Moi is a dark blurple shimmer with a glossy finish and a lot of glow. Great application and a  to 3 coats coverage. I used 2 coats plus topcoat.
This phrase somehow sounds more chic than “excuse me” when you’re bumping into people in the market. This color is a satin finish of an exceptional indigo, blue overcast with iris purple. Flashes of a beautifully generous shimmer gleams with stunning sparkles.

C'est Tout is a green based gunmetal shimmer, almost khaki, scattered with pink and green sparkles. Highly pigmented, almost a one-coater, I used 2 thin coats plus topcoat.
This color is a rivalry between gunmetal and green, for sometimes it appears to be a dark gray with blue undertones and in another moment, you will see a green with micro shimmers of pink, blue, and gold. If you are ever asked, “Avec ça?” You should answer with a resounding, “That’s all!”

Combien? is a nude gold infused with multicolored shimmers that dries to a matte finish. Great application and a brushstroke-free finish. Two coats shown below.

"Possibly the most important French word used while shopping—it means: How Much?! Elegant and neutral, this beige-gold with a slight rose cast is not too shy to ask how much. This color is jammed-packed with sugary shimmer, but dries down to a matte for a tasteful bling-ness. Add a swipe of topcoat to amp up the bling factor. Ani 2.0 anyone?"

Trois Oignons Rouges is a bright magenta crelly that dries to a semi satin finish. It pops! I used 3 thin coats to achieve full coverage and topped them with TC.

"This was the first French phrase I strung together. Like the inside of red onions, this color is a cross between magenta and a toned-down fuchsia that dries to a chic matte. This application is so easy that you might want to try all of our other crème jellies. For ultra shine, use our legendary topcoat."

The Rescue Beauty Lounge Je t'aime! Je t'aime! collection will be available for sale on Tuesday the 28th :D
